One of the most popular Jamaican music album series of all timeFeatures numerous major Jamaican hits from the rock steady era. In the late '70s, the influence of rock steady on the burgeoning sound of dancehall was duly recognised by a number of Jamaica's longest-standing producers, who delved deep within their archives to re-release many of their finest and most influential works from the previous decade. Of all the re-issues of vintage material from this period, none proved more popular than the 'Hottest Hits' albums series, each of which comprised a dozen rock steady and early reggae tracks from the vaults of Duke Reid's Treasure Isle catalogue. Now, at long last, all three original albums in the series are issued together in this essential 3CD set. Also featured are three newly curated volumes, plus an array of bonus recordings, culminating in 84 tracks of solid gold Treasure Isle gems.
